Thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments about those few seconds of magic in my last post - it seems the hare holds a special place for a lot of folk.
On the same walk I took many other photos, some to capture the moment, some to take for blogging and most of them .... of Moss.
So, I thought I would share a few (yes just a few) of our dilly dog enjoying her walk.
She adores Himself, often trailing around after him with a stick or a ball and asking him to throw it for her. Yes, before anyone says - dogs should not carry sticks, tell that to Moss who collects sticks with the fervour of a trainspotter collecting train details or a twitcher trying to photograph the latest bird.
She has this 'trade up and swap' system with sticks. She'll find one almost as soon as we start walking, she'll carry it, dropping it at our feet, retrieving it almost immediately and carry it a bit further.... until she finds a 'better' stick or a 'bigger' stick and then she swaps. This will continue for most of the walk - even on this hot 10 miler walk - many a stick joined us on those dusty miles.
The only thing better than a stick .... water. Any river, stream, trough, pond, bath, puddle or the sea - and the combination of sticks in water - happy happy dog!
If she thinks we are being too slow, she returns to check we are still following, then turns back setting out front as our own personal scouting party :)
And, we know if it has been a good one, when Moss once back home or back at the van, she scoffs her dinner and flops over on her side and has a deep and rejuvenating nap - ready for the next adventure!
